Overview (Program Summary)
The ACC Hong Kong Board of Directors invites you to the following presentation, hosted by:
As the future becomes increasingly unpredictable, it's becoming harder for businesses to make short-term and long-term strategic decisions. There is one thing that could help - data and metrics! Data is known to be the new oil of the digital era and is becoming a priority for many legal teams.
COVID has pushed many of us to look at much-needed changes in our organisations and legal teams, and enabling a more data-driven culture through the use of metrics is high on the priority list. In this session, we will discuss with our esteemed panel of legal leaders their insights on data as well as their journey on driving a culture where data is at the centre of decision-making.
Key themes will include:
- How do you start enabling a data-driven culture in legal teams?
- How do you build and drive a data strategy?
- What are some of the key kind of data metrics to look at?
- What are some useful tools and technologies for measuring data?
- What impact has this had on the operating model of your legal team?
This will be an important session for those legal leaders who want to take their legal teams into the new digital era. Be sure to join this important conversation!
